Collaborative Divorce

Collaborative Divorce is a private alternative to the often stressful and time consuming adversarial divorce.  Rather than going through litigation and having their future decided by a judge, spouses who go through the collaborative process maintain a greater degree of control over their future.  Collaborative divorce differs from traditional divorce in that, along with their attorneys, both parties will meet with a mental health coach and financial professional in order to reduce the stressors and antagonistic nature of the divorce process.  The goal of each professional involved in the collaborative process is to reach a settlement that both parties are comfortable with. Collaborative divorce is especially helpful to spouses with minor children who will continue to be in each other’s lives after the divorce.

Attorneys David Sayward and Anthony Muir are both trained in collaborative divorce.  David Sayward is a pioneer in the collaborative process and Anthony Muir currently serves on the board of the New Hampshire Collaborative Law Alliance.
